On MacOSX using the
rstream package for multiple random number streams reports an error from within RStudio (
Error: C stack usage XXXXXXX is too close to the limit), but not from the terminal or the R.app.
The following code fails in RStudio but works from the terminal or the R.app
#install.packages("rstream") library(rstream) # Instantiate a new stream (should be able to generate a very large number # of such streams) s <- new("rstream.mrg32k3a") #> Error: C stack usage 7969260 is too close to the limit Cstack_info() # size current direction eval_depth # 7969177 13168 1 2
Cstack_info() from the terminal (which does not return an error) is analogous.
Cstack_info() # size current direction eval_depth # 7969177 10048 1 2
